“Almost half of all Americans say they know someone who has been shot and about a quarter say they or someone in their family have been threatened by someone with a gun.” That’s the headline at courthousenews.com, reporting on the recently released Pew Research Center report.
Obviously, a lot of veterans amongst TTAG’s Armed Intelligentsia have been there, seen that, many times over. That counts.
For my part, Ex-Wife II threatened me with a GLOCK 30SF. (Go straight to divorce. Do not pass go.) As a kid, someone shot and killed my family doctor, leading to the creation of Handgun Control Inc. (later The Brady Campaign). And I saw the final moments of Everybody Loves Raymond star Sawyer Sweeten (above), who committed suicide in the house behind mine.
How about you? Do you know anyone who’s been shot? Do you know anyone who’s been threatened with a gun?
